Urinary calculi are more common in children and teenagers in the Middle East than in other parts of the world. The fate of 45 cases is discussed in this work. Twenty-one passed their stones, three with renal calculi were kept under observation, and 21 cases had different types of surgical intervention. There were only two bladder stones treated by cystolithotomy and only one nephrectomy was done. The low incidence of bladder stones and the high percentage of radio-opaque stones, inspite of the relatively high incidence of stone disease in this age group, are probably due to the changing socio-economic conditions in Jordan.
